Rescue. Rebuild. Reimagine.

The American Rescue Plan, like the COVID relief bills before it, present opportunities for states to think beyond one-time aid and make transformative new investments and significant changes to state early childhood policy.


State early childhood policy advocates across the country are increasingly realizing that now is the time to think big and act boldly, to resist austerity narratives about one-time funding, and to push their state to complement the federal commitment with state investments.

Here you can find the latest on ARP and early childhood in a variety of areas: 

State Plans and Actions

Legislation and General Guidance

Direct Funding for State Governments

Early Care and Education

Family Stability and Economic Supports

Infants and Toddlers

Maternal and Child Health

Public Education, PK-3


This resource center aggregates information on how states can — and are — using these crucial funds to rebuild and reimagine the way they support young children and their families.
